I met Heather Acton at WordCamp Chicago, in 2011. I think what stands out with Heather is that she is really a warm person and has a lot of great insight. You can just randomly sit at a table and find that she’s extremely approachable. Heather’s participation with WordPress and her surrounding community is fantastic. Being an organizer of WordCamp Chicago comes with a LOT of responsibility. Sure, there’s a supporting team, but she really goes above and beyond for the community. If it weren’t for people like her, I probably wouldn’t have much camaraderie with my Chicago WordPress friends. Aside from being an organizer, Heather volunteers her time to speak at WordCamps. Her talks have a nice range in them, showing she’s no Spring chicken when it comes to using and working with WordPress. You can find some of Heather Acton’s WordCamp talks on WordPress.tv. For me, I believe Heather Acton is a WordPress Rockstar, so that is why I’ve asked her to be a part of the WordPress Rockstar Interview series.
